I picked up some of that soft rubbery drawer liner from Harbor Freight last night. I refer to Jazzman's entire site quite often... Great stuff, well documented build.
I asked how to straighten here only because the panels have more than just mild bending :-(.
I did find a very local perf metal supplier online yesterday. Hopefully, they will make a size I won't have to cut. It would be nice if the whole panel had a solid border, as someone pointed out here very recently. :-)

Yes, it would be great if we could get some 12" wide panels with a 1/2" border on each side !!!

OnlineMetals.com has standard sizes like 12x48 but will also cut to any size you specify, and they're cheap too.

I checked their website a few minutes ago and it shows "0" quantity of the AN506's in stock so I'm guessing they haven't updated the quantities yet.... did you you call them to find that out?

The "33" quantity posted on their site earlier must have been an error. It seems finding a steady source is still hit and miss.... and $13 bucks each was almost too good to be true.

Spent an hour straightening the panels. They seem to be flat enough, and time will surely tell. After some bending back into shape on the drawer liner, I set each panel flat on the wood work surface I was using, and tapped along the width and height looking for high spots. Straightened even more, so, we'll see.
Also got the angle grinder out and started rounding off all the sharp edges. That will take a while--maybe get that done this weekend.
Thirdly, a friend had a tested set of electronics he was willing to part with, so that's on the way too. Been a good day of progress.
